Fully Booked
RTPI Yorkshire

Yorkshire's Greatest Planning Achievements: the 1990s

Examining the role of the Leeds Urban Design Guide on the changing shape of the Riverside, this seminar and study tour will focus on past impressions and plans, what has actually happened and the forces that have driven change. The important role of private enterprise will be examined and the vision brought up to date by examining links to wider city plans.

This half day Seminar focuses on the urban design challenges faced by the Waterfront regeneration programme.  It includes talks by Leeds City Council design experts who will describe how the River Aire was the life blood of Leeds’ historic growth, remains key to the future development of the city and is being redeveloped via a design framework.  You will also hear from developers who are active on the waterfront and supporting the regeneration of the area. A series of short and stimulating talks will be followed by a walking tour of the Waterfront area.

This is the ninth in a series of special RTPI Centenary low cost seminars where we look at the greatest planning achievements in Yorkshire over the past 100 years.

This Seminar is now fully booked. Reserve list only.
